About Tom Forsythe

I moved to Kanab 20 years ago to escape the frenzy of Los Angeles and have never worked so hard in my life. I traded the not so stressful life of reading screenplays on the beach for the complexity of rural life. After successfully fending off the rapacious legal eagles representing the Mattel Corporation - - I took on the responsibility of running the Little Hollywood Land tourist business. We sell iconic images of the mythic American West. We'll sell you great jewelry or put you in a classic old time photo. Running a business is a lot of work but the beauty of the land keeps it all fun - living here is like looking at the world through an 81 A warming filter.

Tom Forsythe purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Tom Forsythe chose Utah

This charming historical home combines history with modern comfort. For the price of a decent hotel room you can enjoy an entire house.

In town location convenient to shops & restaurants and the Highway to all the great sights in Southern Utah.

This house has a modern kitchen with all amenities, a cool saltillo tile floor in kitchen & bath and sustainably harvested locally grown wood floors. It's a very nice with some real personality and room to make yourself at home.

After a long day enjoying the sites you can soak in the claw foot tub, surf the Wi fi or enjoy DVDs from the video library.

What makes this cottage unique

Of course there's a washer/dryer and quality linens. The living room has a romantic propane fireplace and comfortable seating. Out back there's a rock patio and outdoor fireplace.

Now that we have hypoallergenic wood floors we can't in good conscience allow pets in this home.

Comfortable home and great location

  • 4 of 5

This home was the perfect place to stay. It was close to Best Friends, Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon-North Rim. Very comfortable. Our home away from home.

Cozy home, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for our southwest adventure, having never been before. The location was perfect if you're traveling to the National Parks but don't forget about everything in Kanab - Coral Pink Sand Dunes and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary are not to be missed. Kanab is an adorable town with great history and great restaurants.

The house was cozy with everything we needed. There was a slight ant problem when we arrived but Tom was quick to help the situation and everything was fine the rest of the week. It was nice to enjoy the fenced in back area in the cool evenings. The master suite was great and the bed was incredibly comfortable. It was a great home away from home.

Remodeled older home.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home that has been remodeled with an eye for comfort. Full kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals. King size bed very comfortable. Swamp cooler will freeze you out if you let it, no worry about overheating. The house is on the main road through town and really easy to get to and from. We enjoyed our stay from this location.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kanab. The house is comfortable and well-stocked. Our host was very responsive and took care of a minor concern very quickly. We found the house a welcome retreat after days of driving and hiking in Zion and Bryce.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

Kanab cottage worked great for our family of 5. Older kids split the den/small bedroom and younger was comfortable on the couch. Everyone slept well on comfy beds. Location is good right on the end of town with easy access to east Zion entrance and Bryce. Thought about going to north rim but it is closed until May 15. Turned right at Fredonia instead and spent a day in Vegas. Great trip, thanks for the great accommodations!

Good local grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. 5 miles to Best Friends, 30 miles to Zion, 78 to Bryce, 70 to Lake Powell, 74 to Grand Canyon. It's beautiful in every direction, the land that Hollywood filmed to create the world's image of the iconic American West.

Since I own Little Hollywood Land I highly recommend this free Movie Set Museum, Trading Post and Photo Studio. Seriously it's worth visiting and the staff will help you choose the best activities for your interest and budget. There's lots of free hiking, some of it even guided, and many outfitters willing to beat up their vehicles to get you deep into the back-country. There are guided ATV and horseback tours, scenic flights and zip lines.

We'll clue you in on the attractions beyond the big names, places like Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Peekaboo slot canyon, Bunting Trail or Hog Canyon. How about Cascade Falls - see Navajo Lake shoot out of a hole in the side of a mountain - the headwaters of the Virgin River that carved Zion Canyon. We think the parks are too crowded and I'll make sure you find the places that make Kanab worth visiting over and over again.
